BZ4X recalls 2700 vehicles globally


2022-06-23: [Article Link]  For the sake of bZ4X, toyota’s open mountain of pure electricity, toyota has been heartbroken. Toyota recently announced a global recall of 2,700 bZ4X. bZ4X is Toyota’s first pure electric vehicle, which was listed overseas in April of this year. Officially mentioned in the recall that bZ4X had the possibility of unwinding the wheel bolts of tyres during repeated turns, emergency brakes, etc., and that there was a serious risk that the tires might fall, so a global recall was launched and stated that the original plant had requested the owner to suspend the use of the vehicles, and that the rehabilitation would be called back as soon as the improvement programme was confirmed. According to official announcements, the recall of bZ4X for sales in the US, Europe, Japan, etc. does not involve the Chinese market. Indeed, since the model has not yet been marketed in mainland China, Toyota has indicated that it would investigate the situation and avoid a similar situation. Whether the bZ4X was recalled immediately after delivery abroad, or the recent domestic postponement of the launch, the Toyota electric road appears to have been less smooth. Previously, the toyota bZ4X launch, which was scheduled to be announced on 17 June, had been urgently suspended at the same day's launch. Unusual operations had led to the assumption that, after all, as the first Toyota pure electric vehicle model, bZ4X had a clear strategic significance for the Toyota electric transition. In response, Toyota (GAC) sources suspended the price for bZ4X because “taking into account that the market as a whole is affected by the supply of chips, the price volatility is high and the time when vehicles are offline cannot be accurately estimated for the time being, it was decided to postpone the price announcement after a combination of these considerations. We are exploring within ourselves a more competitive price that we want to give back to consumers.” According to public sources, bZ4X locates medium SUVs, which are the first pure electric motor vehicle model based on the Toyota e-TNGA pure electricity exclusive structure, and the new car will provide four options for CLTC CLTC, 400 km, 500km, 560km and 615km, providing two power forms: pre-electric and double power.
